October 1, 2013 update

Kickstarter supporters:

Greetings from the rainy Northwest. As the weather here dampens our streets and trails, our spirits are on the rise. Though our progress continues to be slower than any of us like, it is steady and significant. Today, we want to report three substantial developments:

We have completed engineering analysis of BodyFloat and our testing confirms our new versions to be stronger and lighter: units we can ship to you with confidence.

We are in the final stages of negotiating a substantial investment that will give us the ability to get back into production with an immediate goal of fulfilling our obligations to our Kickstarter supporters. We will post Kickstarter Reward information as soon as possible.

We continue to earn validation with both comfort and performance aspects of BodyFloat from riders, bike-fitters, and industry leaders and contacts.

Again, getting BodyFloat to the market is taking longer than we hoped. A few Kickstarter supporters have noted our progress, it is slower than desired. We are moving forward as quickly as possible.Getting this product to you has proven to be very complex, so we are taking the time to do so correctly.

We will post another update in 2-4 weeks as news comes in and we drill down on product delivery estimates. Thank you for your patience and support.

Best Regards,

Cirrus Cycles

      2-4 weeks have come and gone -- any updates?

      I'm glad to hear that the new version is stronger and lighter. Is that internal testing you were talking about, or has the new model passed the CEN tests that you mentioned in May?

      With regards to the investment negotations, I'm loathe to count chickens before they are hatched. Cirrus previously told backers that a last-minute fallout of major investment negotiations was one of the major causes of all these delays in the first place. Best of luck, and tell us when you have the check in hand :)
